Terminator 2 is widely regarded as one of the best action movies of all time. It surpasses the original in nearly every way from the story to the special effects to the enormous temporal paradoxes.
Skynet has sent another Terminator back in time, this time to kill John Conner. This time it’s a snazzy new model made of liquid metal and no, he’s not a walking puddle somehow. But with Skynet security being what it is, the resistance found out and future John captured a T-800 (apparently they’re pretty easy to get) and reprogrammed it to protect his younger self. So off through the municipal time transport he’s sent to save an obnoxious young John Conner with no regard for the integrity of the space-time continuum.
Can he learn the value of human life? Can he learn from John how to act like a douchey 90’s kid? Can the Terminator save John Conner? Well yeah, of course; the hero always wins in these things. I mean seriously, have you ever gone to see an action movie wondering if the hero was going to succeed or not?
Join me as I riff this 90’s classic about a neutered Terminator and the boy who loved him.*
*As I read that now I realize how inappropriate that sounds but refuse to change it.
This riff is for the Special Edition (2h 32m) version of the movie.
